To underline Gyeonggido's status as Korea’s most populous province and to expand its identity, the local government created a unique font for marketing purposes: Gyeonggi1000font. The concept behind the font is the word, ‘E-um’. ‘E-um’ occurs at the start of the word Gyeonggido, so it embodies the 1,000-year history of Gyeonggido (The name Gyeonggi was first recorded in 1018 during the Hyunjong Era). ‘E-um’ also represents the joining of the Korean peninsula geopolitically and the resilient strengths of its inhabitants. Gyeonggi1000font not only represents the past 1,000 years, but also what’s to come for the next 1,000. The font includes six styles to accommodate various uses.
